Tuesday & Wednesday, Days 6 & 7

I missed Yesterday, was both busy, and slack.

Today I started building out a got it probably 80% functional, which I am pretty happy about.
Yesterday I was working in the office, and all this week I have been trying to get my phone sorted out.
Over a week ago I moved my Telecom number to vodafone so I can use an iPhone.

After a mess around from Vodafone, I am now connected, same number, new service provider, and no text messages! Vodafone are having ‘Issues’ with ported numbers not being able to send text’s, I can receive but it is very frustrating.

Quick post for today, Photo taken while talking to Jen on the Phone.

iPhone Ringtones

With the Apple iPhone, Apple have reduced the availability of the end user to easily add free custom ringtones. You have the standard tones, and the 30 second snippets from the Apple Store, but you have no control on where the snippets start and stop.

I started looking in to how I could generate my own ringtones and add them.

I first found and downloaded ‘Audacity and started to hack in to a mp3 song from my iTunes library.

When looking around to find the best format to export the new ringtone snippet (which is ‘.m4r’), I came across ‘Audiko‘.

Adiuko.Net is a fantastic FREE site that has 1000’s of pre-existing ring tones in multiple formats.

The other great feature is that you can upload your own mp3 file, select your own track snippet, and it will create a ringtone that you and any one else can now download.

The service is a great idea, the server speed is great.

Check out Audiko!

Friday, Day 2

Its Friday, I am in Auckland, well Albany to be exact. I for some stupid reason, left my laptop power supply down at the mount, so have like 5 minutes of power left.

Agenda for today is work, lunch, work, catch back up with arron, catch up with my friend Dave at my old flat where he lives now and I used to like 5 years ago for a few beers, he is having a ‘end of time’/’birthday’ few drinks so that will be good to catch up. Then back to TGA and hopefully see Jen.

Thought of the day: “Don’t forget the power!”

Mountain Bike Event 1

So, you who know me, know I am pretty darn lazy. So in Saturday I got a call from my sister at 7:30am wanting me to go riding with her, as her friend was sick. I was like “Hell No !”, but she managed some how to talk me in to it.

We headed over to Woodhill Bike Park on to a bike, and 5 minutes later my thighs were burning, 10 minutes they were killing, and 15 minutes later every seconds breath contained a concoction of swear words.

It was hard work, but fun, I didn’t go over any serious or even semi-serious jumps. It was the first time I have been on a bike in years, and may even go again this weekend. I popped a couple of wheelies, and didn’t even fall off!
